    DVD movie technology to hit Wii late 2007

    In a press release earlier today, Soni Solutions announced that their CinePlayer CE DVD Navigator application will be used to bring "high-quality DVD movie viewing to a future version" of Wii.

    "To be involved in Nintendo's ground-breaking gaming console is extremely gratifying and a testament to the efficiency, flexibility and dependability of Sonic's technology," said Jim Taylor, senior vice president and general manager of Sonic's Advanced Technology Group. "Game consoles represent a fresh market and platform where we can introduce a new audience of potentially millions to the quality of our brand and the power of our digital media applications."

    Scheduled to hit the stores late 2007.

    So, this is software, right? That means we can probably spend some Wii Points and download the app and then be able to play DVDs, no?

    Sounds cool to me if they stick with the: "high-quality DVD movie viewing to a future version"

    Why don't they do it now? It is just a simply software that plays DVDs.

    New console or software? You decide.

    FTFA: "...bring high-quality DVD movie viewing to a future version of the company's Wii™ gaming console. Nintendo plans to release this version of Wii in the latter half of 2007."

    Seems to me this means another console will be released with the functionality, but the article is too vague to be sure. Any other news would be nice

    so, is it possible just to do a firmware upgrade or would it be a different Wii, because the Wii games are on DVD already... hope so.
